Twentieth Century Fox is in early talks with the helmer to resuscitate the gang, but the studio said no deal is in place, and the project is not envisioned as a pre-SAG/DGA strike affair.

Isn't the guy who played Hannibal no longer with us?
George Peppard died some time ago. Michael Clarke Duncan should be Mr T. !!
Mr T is Mr T foo!
Who would you have cast as the A-Team?

Mine Would be as follows:

MR -T - Michael Clarke Duncan
Hannibal - George Clooney
Face - Brad Pitt
Murdoch - Jim Carrey
i think mr.t is a christan. jesus is so majestic.
The Boyer Famil
Mr.T needs to work on his Acting,but,he is a Christion.
duncan is to old to play T, the rock as mr t, jack black as murdock, clooney is good for hannibal, no pitt for face,
Mr. T is Mr! I wonder if any of you have even seen an episode of the A Team?
I'm with you Dan!

Mr.T played Sargeant Bosco Albert Baracus in The A-Team.
No-one can play'!

B.A. - Ice Cube (he's got the snarl and the acting ability)

Hannibal - George Clooney's a good shout though I dunno whether he'd go for it. I've heard Bruce Willis mentioned.

Face - dunno yet...

Murdoch - Jim Carrey maybe but Woody Harrelson is more likely (has the southern accent and hairline also)
so has Nick Cage but I don't think he's quite crazy enough.
Yeah Mr T is an ugly Christian, so what if he is a Christian? That makes him better then the rest lol ?

Most pedofiles and killers in america where Christians, yeah that's so great.
"I aint' gettin on no plane", Mr T or Crazy foo'! and I grew up watching the A-team so I have watched many many episodes.
Okay Bob Sapp (The Longest Yard) for Sgt. Bosco "B.A." Baracus (B.A = Bad Attitude)
Woody Harrelson/Nick Cage not mad enough for Capt. H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock still think Jim Carrey.
Lt. Templeton 'Faceman' Peck - still think Pitt, but may cost to much, how about Ryan Reynolds (Blade Trinity)
and Clooney as Col. John 'Hannibal' Smith
I heard on the net a while back of some other ideas:

Hannibal: Tommy Lee Jones (possible in my opinion), Anthony Hopkins (though not my choice), Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson... I think you get the idea.

BA: I agree. No one can pull off BA like Mr T did, but that was from the TV series. The movie I understand will be darker. The Rock was a choice mentioned about 7 months ago, Duncan is getting too old for the part, Ice Cube could pull it off.

Murdock: No one has mentioned Jaime Kennedy. He basically took Carrey comedy recipe and took off where Carrey left it. Carrey has become a more serious actor now; just like Robin Williams has. I hate to suggest it but maybe Dane Cook or Dax Shepard might be ideas.

Face-man is the easiest. Look for the current Pretty-boy in the A list and use him.
George Clooney is a sexy, sexy man. I do enjoy his acntig, as well. Don't forget about Good Night, and Good Luck! I don't really like when people compare him to Cary Grant, though. They're from completely different generations with different styles!
That's the smart thinking we could all beenfit from.
